Architect Visit: Gray Organschi in Connecticut

Julie Carlson June 08, 2009

Gray Organschi Architecture is a design firm and fabrication workshop based in New Haven; the principals—Elizabeth Gray and Alan Organschi—met as students at the Yale School of Architecture, where Organschi now teaches. The duo specializes in “modern, finely crafted objects and environments,” such as this 875-square-foot guest cottage in Guilford, Connecticut, which recently won a Design Award from Residential Architect. According to the magazine: “Working within strict height restrictions and a program that included an accessible ground-floor bedroom and bath, open kitchen, and loft, the project team made every move count. In the loft and the bedroom downstairs, tall corner partitions slide into a pocket in the wall, putting the occupants at one with the rocky perch. The sloped sod roof is planted with the same sedum species that grows in the meadow, and the interior is wrapped in bleached bamboo. One of the judges said, ‘It’s like a little music box, organic and joyous.'”
